The Downtown Bloomington Association heard your four-legged friend was itching for a city adventure, so they declared the upcoming weekend to be Downtown’s Dog Days.
So, bring your canine companion(s) to First Friday on Aug. 2. In addition to the usual mix of live music outdoors, cool shops and galleries to visit, there will be all of this going on:
- Paws 4 a Cause will be set up in front of Say Anything Studio at 315 N Main to make free ID tags for your pet(s)
- The ultra cool used book/pop culture shop Bobzbay at 419 N Main will be holding a donation drive for the Humane Society of Central Illinois
- The Downtown Dog Days Photo Contest! Take a photo of your dog visiting Downtown Bloomington on Aug. 1-4 Post your photo on Instagram using #ilovedowntownbloomington and tag @downtownbloomington, or post your photo on Facebook using #ilovedowntownbloomington and tag @downtownbloomingtonassociation to enter. Winners will be randomly and will be notified via photo comment (if you share on FB, make sure the status is set to public).
And if you can’t come on Friday, that’s okay; pets are also welcome at the Downtown Bloomington Farmers’ Market on Saturday, and there will be doggie treats for sale!
